    Day 2. Campillos Fuente de Piedra - 16 km.

    Today we start walking from a landmark , the Interpretation Center Jose Antonio Valverde , the best bird observatory Lagoon of Fuente de Piedra . Early in the morning, with a nice cold breeze Sitting in the shade hearing the flamingos. Then we have started to surround the masive extension of saline water from the east and then we have enraptured with farmhouses dotted along the road to Campillos, and we are surprised with the unknown Laguneta del Lobón where we made a short stop to rest and prepare our arrival in Campillos , a diligent village with famous meat products and leather goods. The third lagoon of the day, called Dulce, welcomes us.

    Day 3. Campillos to Chorro Reservoirs - 15 km.

    This morning, walking out to the east after a tasty breakfast with muffins and extra virgin olive oil we did not expect the huge impact on the plains were going to cause successive gaps. It does not surprise us that its protected as a reserved Nature. A huge number of birds swim or dive into the water or along the andurrean Banks looking for food. But the views of the two large landscapes at the end of the road, blue waters and green forests bordering has not gone behind. What a good walk and many surprises in store for us. This is the Great Path of Malaga!

    Day 4. El Caminito del Rey - 10 km.

    Not yet recovered from yesterday's stage, we got up and had breakfast immediately to get to know the third lake, the oldest one, and then another one, and then Los Gaitanes! When it seemed like there was no way out, and had to turn back, there was a walkway built over the abyss, the old road that the King Alfonso XIII visited and was renamed Caminito del Rey. We did not leave our astonishment, but suddenly the valley opens up and we are in a bubble of nature full of pine trees, a landscape that enjoyed sitting on a bench and with the flow of wáter next to a pond. The road gets higher, and to get to the other side we have to cross a bridge, 100 meters above the water. And you have to see the pictures we've done on a glass balcony. This experience is undoubtedly to live.

    Day 5. El Chorro Ardales - 16 km.

    El Chorro is a railway station where many hotels have been built. We are next to a huge hydraulic pipe by a chimney but not until we got to the top our guides explained what its function is, What we least expected was to find a big lake at the top! The best comes later: it turns out from these mountains a certain Omar Ibn Hafsum acaudilló a rebellion against the Umayyad Emirate of Córdoba more than 1,000 years ago beside the road there are houses, a church and military installations of its mountain stronghold . An interesting story that gives us strength to continue and, crossing hills with almond, cottages and pine forest leads us to Ardales, whitening under his castle. Let's see if we get gazpachuelo for lunch.

    Day 6. Ardales to El Burgo - 15 km.

    We have already got to know the river that washes the feet of the cozy village that has proved to be Ardales. To continue our way we have to cross to the other side using a Roman bridge , surround by a huge castle scene of bloody battles between Christians and Muslims and penetrate in a dense pine forest. It has been good , after the past emotions , this quiet walk through the woods, along comfortable dirt tracks. A gentle descent leads us to first find some springs and sources and then , slowly , lovingly cultivated fertile orchards . We are sure that our food will be prepared with tasty products of these lands.

    Day 7. Mixed Route , El Burgo to Ronda - 17 km

    Walking after a great breakfast we had on our side the clean river “Turon at birth” . But we had to stop at a dam with a waterfall and blue pools of calm waters. Our guides tells us that there are more like this so we keep walking and , indeed, there are three more , one of them next to a farm with goats, sheep and guard dogs.
    And then we expect the mountain, we have to start to climb ap the track by a Cornicabral looking for the ruins of an Arab tower that still crowns a rocky outcrop arises . But on the other side there are no rocks, there is a green meadow with cattle and a large farmstead . Of course the landscape does not leave us indifferent , but it is even more impressive from the Port of Lifa , no less than 1,160 meters. And we can see Ronda in the distance.
    We were so abstracted with the contemplation of the landscape we saw deers running through the oaks so close to a city and we are lucky to see these animals ... The prelude to our triumphal entry into Ronda, to complete these hiking quality days. Decidedly, we have earned a good lunch and a break to try to arrange so many feelings and memories. We did it!!!

    Day 8. Transfer from Nerja to Malaga Airport

    At the appointed hour we pick you up at the hotel to take you to the airport , ending here our journey with the hope that they have been a few days of enjoyment by the beauty of the landscape , the silence of paths and gratitude of the people who live in the province of Malaga.
